Wow!!! We watched soul2soul here last night and all I can say is AMAZING!!! Loved the venue, loved the show and the drinks aren't too badly priced too which is a bonus.

Beautiful venue to see Beach House last night, though overcrowding was a massive problem. Too busy to move through the crowd, even right at the back of the room. Sell less tickets at a highflier price and give people a better experience.

Fantastic venue watching keifer sutherland. Relaxed crowd, who are there for the music. Beautiful venue and wether you are upstairs or down you have a good view. It's all standing downstairs and sitting upstairs. Seats are like stairs, can numb the bum after abit.

Ditto the above. if you get there early enough you can bag a front balcony seat. Depending on the type of gig the people around and in front of you will either stay seated or not I guess.
